I wandered around with that headful and remember getting to the front near the spread out tapers. What i remember most is the fear on their faces as i walked around. They all put their hands up to protect their gear so i must have been a mess. I quickly figured out i needed to sit and chill before i made someone mad.
Wish i had my ticket to this show. I remember we dropped them in a barrel on the way in and as you left, you could reach in and grab a handful of tickets on the way out. I didn't go through the gate on the way out though, i climbed a fence and ripped my new t-shirt. Why, i'm not sure, but i was a little shaken after spending the night on the ground in that field. The band played late and i just layed down where i was rather than find my way back to the car. I knew my buddies wouldn't leave me. The reason i was so shaken was that i awoke to a stabbing poke to my ribs. I grabbed the object doing the poking and looked up at some sort of deputy on horseback with a pole jabbing me in the ribs telling me it was time to go home. At first i was a little freaked, did i have anything on me? Was i in trouble, etc. then i saw 6 or 7 dudes on horseback scattered through the racetrack waking up folks just like me just after daylight. No scenes were made, they just wanted to start the cleanup and needed us gone.
The show was a blast and it was a real treat to finally hear it years later. My first listen was a terrible AUD copy on casette and thankfully better copies have surfaced. What a memory.
